Located in the heart of the Left Bank in the 7th arrondissement on a large shopping street, Le Bon Marché and La Grande Epicerie are unmistakable landmarks on this side of Paris.

Whether you are looking for an eclectic yet elegant shopping experience, or some fine goods to bring back home as food souvenirs, these two stores are a must-visit for any great shopper.

The concept is simple – two stores facing each other and connected via skyway provide high quality goods for the ultimate shopping experience. Le Bon Marché focuses on durable goods, that is to say, clothing and fashion accessories, makeup, books, appliances, home decoration, and perfumeries.

With quality and name brands such as Diptyque or Cire Trudon (candles), Crème de la Mer, Hermès, Paul & Joe, Jérôme Dreyfuss, and Olympia, you are in for a treat as you walk through its many floors and gorgeous layout. Chic in style, you can also take advantage of the summer sales to shop here.

La Grande Epicerie, the best of the culinary world

La Grande Epicerie, on the other hand, is a foods-oriented store that stocks only the finest. From organic to authentic regional foods and luxe foodstuffs, you can travel the best of the culinary world all within the store. From artisanal jams, Alain Milliat juices, Scottish oats, exquisite tapenade, to Mariage Frères Tea, you will find all your heart desires when it comes to food and ingredients. The sheer quantity and variety of available items is enough for any food lover to stroll for hours, and are perfect gift ideas for anyone returning back home.

Despite the relatively expensive goods, the stores are still worth visiting for their high quality and polished interiors. The space and the variety of goods available alone are awe-inspiring – no purchases are necessary to admire the artisanal foods, creatively arranged produce, or the artsy escalators and high ceilings.
